    I like that Jesse gave you a decent amt. of drop. What stem length is this built for if I may ask?
    Halal chicken and rice: the foundation of any fine day in the saddle.

    According to the spec sheet, it's built for a 110mm -6deg stem. Jesse based the dimensions on those of my Caad9, with its 60cm top tube, 130mm +8deg stem, and straight seat post, which I now find myself riding off the back of. I wanted a fit that would encourage me to stretch out more, and accomodate me as I build the core strength and flexibility to do so. Beyond making the design goals clear, I'm doing my best to back off, refrain from meddling, and let the experts do their thing.

    Finally built up an rounder rather than using the CX bike. Ti Club Racer with a steel fork, room for fats or fendered 28s. It eats up the rough stuff wonderfully. Nimble yet comfy. Our "paved" roads have become primarily pot-holed chip seal so I've been riding gravel more often than not. This bike may be on its way to becoming the "go to" bike. Also made a return to Shimano, really like the new group. Really fun project for me and the IF crew were excellent to work with.

    Trailside pic doesn't do it justice so a frame-only pic for color. Metallic blue, orange highlights and natural ti.

    That's one of the best looking painted Ti bikes I've seen. Well done.

    I remember. Many were guilty as charged when it came to Fades.

    Ryan is doing some nice work on finish designs. Sent him an example of something I liked, what colors I wanted to use and my intent to use more silver in the build. Really like having the bare ti as color on the seat and down tubes.

    Some pics of the built bike are on the IF blog.

    Fades, give em time...they'll likely be back as everything seems to come around again. I'm not in any rush for them to return.
